  1. Hello,
    I live in Michigan and this is a cake my father grew up on and I want to order a large Oranje Koek – for his 86th birthday! Can u make it and send it to be by Friday.Please call me 248-860-2269 or email me at rogersfam6@ I need to know how much and the shipping cost. This would just make his birthday the beat ever!
    Thank you, Shelley Rogers

    • Hi Nadine, Unfortunately, we are not able to ship to the USA. I suggest you try contacting Vander Veen’s Dutch shop in Wyoming, Michigan. I believe they have a good selection of Dutch products and might have what you are looking for. Good Luck… Almond tartes are one of my favourites!

  2. Greetings from the Philippines!

    I’ve been looking for pastry shops/bakeries all over Friesland but I can’t see anyone that accepts PayPal as payment, and delivers door-to-door.
    Is your shop still operating? Does it deliver to Friesland, particularly in Sneek? And do you accept PayPal? My husband’s birthday is coming and I’m currently in the Ph, so I want to surprise him with the Friesland Orange Cake.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Jal, Best wishes on your husband’s upcoming birthday. Unfortunately, we are located in Canada so I won’t be able to help you! However, my husband has family in Sneek actually! If you Google “bakkerij Sneek Friesland” 3 bakeries will come up. One of them has a webshop so I would try them. I hope your plans to surprise your husband turn out!

      • Hi again,

        Oh, haha I really thought you are in the Netherlands. Sorry. Thank you for your suggestion! I actually found one already, it’s been a challenge though haha.
